I need to get some photos taken so I can participate in this. I have a great soup/comfort food recipe that has been a family favorite for ages. Plus I just designed a very super simple dishcloth and posted it here in the CAL thread... This sounds like fun!

Recipes don't HAVE to have photos submitted with them, but we'll be very happy to publish them if people do include them.


It's always nice to see a photo of what something is supposed to look like! :D
